Georgia Braces For Visit From Clemson

AP Sports Writer

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- For Todd Gurley, the key to avoiding another injury marred season is simple: "Just run harder."

Georgia's dynamic running back will be on display in one of the biggest games of the opening weekend, leading the No. 12 Bulldogs against 16th-ranked Clemson.

A year ago, the Tigers knocked off Georgia 38-35 in the opener. Gurley ran for 154 yards and two touchdowns, but knows it could have been so much more.

In the middle of a 75-yard touchdown run on his second touch of the game, he pulled his quadriceps trying to avoid a tackler. He wound up with only 12 carries.

Assuming Gurley is healthy, Clemson will have its hands full trying to stop Georgia's running game. The Bulldogs also have Keith Marshall and a couple of touted freshmen.
